Special Education Parent Advisory Councils are state mandated advisory groups

The Northborough/Southborough Parent Advisory Council (NSPAC) is a volunteer organization which

  • serves approximately 700 families in the school district.
  • ensures that children with special needs and learning differences in the district receive a safe and appropriate education. 
  • is committed to ensuring our community delivers an understanding, respectful and inclusive support system to all types of learners. 
  • works closely with district administration and educators to identify areas of need and act in an advisory role to the school committee and administration.

Our membership is open to parents and guardians of children who have Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), 504s or anyone interested in special education within the district.

We are a positive and solution oriented group who play an integral role in the programs, research, and solutions that are provided to the children and families who benefit from differentiated learning. We
  • Present monthly educational programs on a variety of topics.
  • Provide a broad range of information, contacts, and networking opportunities.
  • Share resource information and facilitate connections

Volunteers Needed for Understanding Our Differences Program 

We will be working with the district to present an updated Understanding Our Differences Program for all 4th and 5th graders in the fall.  This program will help to teach empathy, kindness and understanding of disabilities. In order for this program to be successfully presented to the students, we will need volunteers at each elementary school. More information coming soon.
